"For out of the overflow of the heart the mouth speaks." Matthew 12:34
Ouch. I've read this verse many times before, but it's always a reality check for me. My words are the overflow of my heart. So when my words are angry, ugly, hurtful or profane, I cannot excuse them by blaming stress, fatigue or circumstances. My words reflect the condition of my heart. With God's grace, may they always be kind, loving and edifying.
